Ahhh Sleep - You Beautiful Sleep!

October 25, 2013

Good morning.  Oh what a great feeling to actually sleep through most of the night.  I started a new regime of meds yesterday afternoon after another visit to the doctor.  Hopefully, now I can on to mending and back on my feet. 

Yesterday, the work on the house got started.  I'll have to go outside later and take some photos.  Also yesterday, the mail lady brought me the nicest surprise.  I got an early  (only a few days early) birthday card with a nice gift tucked inside it.  Thank you Krya.  You know, that purse is exactly what I've been needing to put my "mad money" in.  Of course, that goodie that was hiding inside the purse was ever so tasty.  Mmmm, mmmm.  Oh yes, it's already half gone!

Well, sad to say, the Red Sox did not win last night's game.  Still, there's still a few games to go yet.  I took a couple of photos of Pogo to share with you.  Here he is, all comfy cozy and watching the game.

And here he is after a couple of bad moves and a downhill score.

I'm watching the Weather Channel, and it looks like this wicked cold snap is here to stay.  In Boston right now, it is 4l F degrees, while five minutes away it is 30 F degrees.  Brrrrr!   At least we are not buried in tons of snow.  Sorry, but it is just too early for all this winter weather.

On my way home from the doctor's office yesterday, I stopped in at the bank.  The manager gave me a list of places that give senior discounts.  Woo Hoo!!  There are a couple of wicked good ones on that list, and next week I plan to do a bit of shopping and get my discounts.

Now I'm going to head on over to the kitchen and make a cup of coffee and some breakfast.  Pogo seems to have a good appetite at this hour of the morning even though it is doggie food.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Well, Good Grief, I assume I am going to miss your birthday. And, I suppose I should know when it is, but I don't. Getting old can be a real pain in the arse, if I do say so myself.

I had to come to you through the back door again. I don't know why blogger keeps kicking you off my dashboard. I go thinking maybe you haven't posted yet ( I shoudl know better ... but:( Finally I go down my reading list and you aren't there. Makes me angry ... Grrrrrr!

Anyway, I will be putting some thought into a birthday gift for you. It may not be timely, but it will be heartfelt.

Glad your doctor got you on the right meds and that you are finally sleeping. A good nights sleep will do wonders. Hope you are feeling well soon and I am glad you were smart enough to take an extra week off. You need it and, like you said, the Mrs. doesn't need your germs around. Good thinking ...

I have to run. My Hubby is here to fix my scanner ... Woo Hoo. Catch you later ...

Isn't a good night's sleep just the most glorious pleasure? A person never seems to understand that until they go through a rough spell like you've had. Hopefully you will have many more restful nights ahead.
Pogo looks like he was totally bummed out that the Red Sox loss. Oh well, we'll keep cheering them on's not over yet!

The post did have a real quick trave all over to you! But I'm glad it arrived and in good shape.
So happy for you that you finally had a decent night of sleep! It makes you feel a lot better, isn;t it?
I suppose, Pogo isn;t only bumped out from watching the Red Sox game, but also because he had to survey all that happened to the house LOL!
He always looks adorable.
Hmmm, sometimes it pays off to be a senior citizen LOL!
Curious what you will find during your shopping session, yeah!
You have a great day.
